Windows – Add to a 7-Zip archive: How to exclude certain file types/extensions

7-zipwindows 7

I want to archive a folder, but I want to exlude all media files.

How do I leave out *.avi and *.flac when archiving?

Best Answer

Only possible solution is to use the command-line version (it doesn't work in the GUI [Add to Archive] dialog):

7z.exe a Archive.7z C:\Folder\* -r -x!*.avi -x!*.flac

The "Parameters" input box in the GUI can only be used for compression parameters and cannot be used with standard command line parameters.
